I am a photographer, web developer, and content creator. I worked as a photographer and graphics artist in my high school yearbook staff.
Currently I am studying digital media at the University of Central Florida.
Life Is About The Little Things
Photography for me has become more than just taking photos, applying filters, and posting to social media. It has become a medium to tell stories. I prefer to capture the wild, the unscripted moments because they have the potential to tell genuine stories. Stories that are real and can only be captured once.
How did I come to such understandings? A bit of backstory holds the key. You can learn more about my experience below.
As a senior staff member, I was given three major positions to oversee; I was appointed to Student Life Copy Editor, Co-Athletics Copy Editor, and most importantly Design Editor. As the Design Editor, I had full control of creative vision of the yearbook and it was my responsibility as lead graphics artist to bring that vision to life.
At the end of my sophomore year, I took a big leap forward in my creative interests and joined the Moore Memories Yearbook Staff for the following year. Because I had taken digital media classes in my underclassman years, I was promoted to lead graphics artist on the staff due to the fact that no one else on the staff had prior graphics design experience. During my time as a junior reporter, I learned to take candid, journalistic photographs and reporting all the while creating the design elements of the yearbook.
At the end of my freshman year at Bishop Moore, I was inducted into the Leadership Team, responsible for staffing school events. Due to the lack of a video production team, I took charge over creating and managing all video productions for the Leadership Team. In my time, I directed and produced over a dozen marketing campaigns, PSA, and announcement videos.
